My better half goes with me on the back of our VMax. She is usually the one tapping me to go faster!

Luck boy here!

So do you ride out front ? My wife and I have made many road trips and she is always up front.

My wife rides my bike whenever I'm not riding it. She's an instructor with Motorcycle Ohio so she gets to ride a lot when she's at work.

My wife rides passenger with me on the 950T (less often now that we have a little one). She has ridden on her own on a Kawasaki ZZR600 (my old bike), but after she dumped it twice and I replaced expensive side panels I convinced her that it may be just too tall and heavy for her to safely handle. She's looking at a 650 v-star now. She loves riding horses and fast motorcycles so I consider myself pretty lucky to have her.

Better half started out on the back of mine, that lasted 2 seasons in Michigan. I bought her a rebel to practice on and then she took the class through MSF and then wanted to take another step up, so I bought a Oldwing lol and she took over my 750. Goldwing stator went out and was taking me awhile to fix. I bought a Roadliner and got her a 1300. Daughter was on the Rebel for awhile and then took over the 750. Kinda stresses me out a little that my heart and world are on their bikes behind me, with all the craziness out there but I am very proud of my Girls for learning and passing.

That is awesome that you ride with both of them..you will always have an uneasy feeling when they ride because of all the idiots out there...

I picked up a 1200 Sportster late last season and planned to sell it this spring. My wife wanted to try it out in a parking lot before I sold it to see if she wants to learn to ride. After spending an hour in the school parking lot practicing taking of 2 and stopping, she loved it and singed up for the basic rider safety course in2 weeks and wants to ride the Sportster this summer! It's going to be a fun summer!
